SHOULD I CHOOSE A MALE OR FEMALE?
SHOULD I CHOOSE A MALE OR FEMALE GOLDENDOODLE PUPPY?
HERE ARE THE FACTS THE WAY WE SEE IT:
Many dog owners and breeders will have varying opinions on this topic, such as: "Males are sweeter" or "Females are much calmer". You have to be really careful when listening to these types of opinions because there is simply no truth to broad statements like these.
If you think about this question by putting it into a more "Human Perspective" you will get a better understanding of the truth to the matter. Some people have a very misguided opinion and may say that men are more aggressive, work harder, and are better leaders than women in the workplace... and that women are more emotional than men. Although there may be some people that would fit into these broad categories there are also just as many that do not. Most of us would agree that although there are many men that are very aggressive in the work place, there are also just as many women who can run circles around their male counterparts. Likewise there are women who would never shed a tear while some men are extremely compassionate.
This perspective is just as applicable when choosing a puppy. Character traits are very unique to each individual puppy in the litter and often have nothing to do with gender. We have had female pups that have been the bully in the litter just as often as the males. Likewise, we have the calm laid back puppy be a male in one litter and a female in the next. Broad generalizations can be very misleading when you are trying to pick out a puppy. We strongly recommend that you consider each individual puppy according to it's own unique blend of characteristics while setting gender aside.
Another note of caution concerning gender assumptions: Some people tend to believe that male puppies will be larger than females. Although this may often prove to be true with some purebred breeds it is not always the case with Doodles. When adding the poodle into the mix you should consider the fact that there may be many differing sizes in the puppies backgrounds. Poodles come in a huge variety of sizes ranging from teacup to royal. If we just look at the standard poodle you could have dogs ranging from about 15" at the shoulders up to 25" at the shoulders! Because of this, you could have a male take after a smaller poodle in his background and a female take after a really large poodle.
So once again it is really important to evaluate each individual puppy according to it's own traits instead of assuming one gender has more benefits than the other.
